Also, it is a great time to clear brush from around any structures and to mow any roadside grass you may have. This will help keep your property safe when the fire danger increases this season. Remember, if you light a fire, you are responsible for all costs to put that fire out and for any damage caused by that fire so please be careful. The Wairarapa Rural Fire District thanks you for your co-operation. 4184832AI 4179669AC InFocus FREE MONTHLY EYECARE ADVICE Brought to you by Stuart Henderson 190 Queen Street (next door to Farmers), Masterton.

It is therefore important we know how to best care for them to ensure they provide us with the best vision possible. The best way to put your glasses on and take them off I suggest you hold your glasses with both hands, either on the front of the frames or the temples (side pieces). When putting your glasses on, push the temples gently over your ears and ease the frame onto your nose. Remove the glasses by using the same two handed grip. The importance of clean glasses Your lenses will give you the best vision when they are clean. Please do not use household cleaners, detergents or hot water on them. Often lenses have special coatings to reduce reflections; these coatings can be damaged if cleaned incorrectly. No lenses should ever be rubbed or polished when they are dry. It is recommended you use special Lens Cleaning Solution or Lens Cleaning Tissues available from your optometrist. Cleaning your lenses with a dirty cloth is a sure way to scratch them. I recommend using a 'Micro-fibre cloth' such as the one you receive with your new glasses. Next month read about what not to do to your glasses, how your optometrist can help you make the most of your glasses and the best way to store your glasses when you're not wearing them.

Warning as peak season for wasps approaches Aggressive: People visiting parks are warned to be wary of wasps. People visiting parks and reserves in Wairarapa are warned to be wary of wasps, with the height of the wasp season approaching. Conservation Department visitor assets programme man- ager Garry Foster says the pub- lic need to be aware of the exist- ence of the wasps, which can be aggressive. At this time of year, wasps' nests are found in sunny spots such as banks which can be close to streams or rivers. The life cycle of wasps means numbers are at their peak between February-April while the queen is hatching young eggs. They can be quite aggress- ive, and discretion is advised.'' Social wasps are an intro- duced pest, and pose a threat to urban, rural and natural ecosystems here. There are four species in New Zealand, with German and common wasps (vespulid) being the problem in Wairarapa at the moment. Allergy New Zealand recom- mends wearing footwear when outside and covering up as two ways of avoiding being stung. While DOC manages the con- trol of wasps on conservation land, it is not responsible for their management on other property. If you come across a nest near a track, picnic area or any other recreational facility in the Wairarapa, contact DOC on 06 377 0700.
